A Self-Healing Poly ( Dimethyl Siloxane ) Elastomer

  title={A Self-Healing Poly ( Dimethyl Siloxane ) Elastomer},
  author={Michael W Keller and Scott R. White and Nancy R. Sottos},
Self-healing polymers and composites that incorporate microencapsulated healing agents exhibit high levels of healing efficiency under both static and dynamic loading conditions. Most self-healing research has focused on the autonomic repair of brittle, thermosetting polymers and high performance fiber-reinforced epoxy matrix composites. These self-healing polymers have low strain-to-failure values, on the order of 2–5 %, and relatively high elastic moduli of 3–4 GPa. In this work, self-healing… CONTINUE READING
